Next on the list,
Some may have seen I have been on the hunt for Tioga gear. There are a few reasons for this,
It is affordable and available NOS quite often,
It is Japanese made (the good bits) like the frame,
It looks and works well!
I sourced a NOS 1 1/8" Headset from the states, I think it is a little earlier than the frame but it is alloy and looks good.
I struggled to find a T-Bone NOS (never when you want one!) but picked up a rough one from the forum.
Not wanting to use it like this I had some paint mixed up and had my 1st attempt at using a rattle can!!! The colour match is actually pretty damn close. A couple of coats of primer, 3-4 coats of blue, and some Tioga decals gave me this,
It looks good but needs some clear coat for protection and I have already scratched it so needs a touch up. I have my eye on a flip flop on ebay so may end up swapping but that is black.
Bars wise what else but Tioga Prestige, NOS from Germany.
And finally on the frame with a Tioga cable hanger,
I love this project so far, irons in the fire include some M900, more Tioga prestige, and fingers crossed. . . . .Revolvers.
